This will count as a test grade, but portions will be graded individually as daily grades as well. You must have your topic selected before I will allow you to begin on the netbooks. You dialogue will need to be typed in a word document (for a grade) before starting the movie-making process.
This will be the major portion of your grade for the six-weeks. Please take it seriously and produce a great movie!
